Notes and Editorial Reviews

Firma Melodiya presents Rimsky-Korsakov’s suite Scheherazade and Stravinsky’s ballet Petrushka recorded by The Tchaikovsky State Academic Big Symphony Orchestra led by the People’s Artist of the USSR Vladimir Fedoseyev. The name of this celebrated orchestra and its artistic director is known worldwide. An outstanding symphonic and operatic maestro, Vladimir Fedoseyev has conquered millions of listeners in Russia, Europe and the world with his renditions of symphonies by Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Mahler, Brahms, Bruckner and Shostakovich. He is also closely connected with the mighty branch of Russian national art that sprung from the music of Glinka and was continued by Stravinsky and Sviridov. Vladimir Fedoseyev has been at the helm of the Read more Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra for over forty years now. One of the oldest orchestras of this country founded in 1930 under the aegis of the All-Union Radio Committee (known as The Big Symphony Orchestra of Central Television and All-Union Radio before 1995), it has always been known as a top-class orchestra and led by some of this country’s best conductors. However, it achieved worldwide prominence as “Fedoseyev’s orchestra” ranking among the best symphonies of Europe and America. In 2013, the album with Fedoseyev’s orchestra’s recording of The Rite of Spring was awarded the prestigious International Classical Music Award for the best historical recording.
